Effect of ileum terminal antibiotic infusion (ITAI) on the concentrations of intestinal cytokines and immunoglobulins in the jejunum (a) and colon (b) of pigs. Values are means ± SEMs (n = 6). Asterisks indicate statistically significant difference from control: *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001.
